Remember that show called "Funhouse??!"
    #3126287 - 09/12/04 05:16 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Anybody remember this Kids show? It was from, like 1988, 89. It's host was JD Roth and they had contestants that would go through this huge course and push eachother in shopping carts and so on. There was slime and kids getting chased around.
It was sort of an imitation of that other kids show called Double Dare. You know, where you would get slimed and so on. That one was more popular than Funhouse, but anyone remember Funhouse?

See more artifacts of the show with the links I provided for you in the follow-up posts!

Heres some more details:

this starts with two teams, who play games involving lots of gunge and stuff.

my young kids think it`s great.

after a few games the team with the highest points gets to go in the `fun house` where they have to find prize tags and collect as many as they can in a set time.
the `fun house` comprises of ball pit, slides, tubes, balloons etc

finally the team has to answer a question, if they get it right they win the prizes they collected and a holiday.




And some more...............

haven't seen fun house in years! does this show even still exist? the last i remember of it, host pat sharp was sporting a short hairdo rather than his laughable 80's mullet, and the girls melanie & martina looked rather old and pretty laughable at pretending to be young girls. the fun house itself didn't change though: a colourful maze of wacky, messy games that entertained a number of schoolkids and exhausted the young small teams of contenders. the winners would get the elusive chance to run the fun house for a chance to win some ultimate prizes.
this is one of the pioneering wacky, kids action game shows and it's unsurpassable. it's colourful, it's high-octane and it's become a classic.
i wonder if pat sharp's hair is selling as memoribilia?...



Still trying to find a picture....

Here's something I found on IMDB:

"While the show was clearly an attempt to build on the success of Nickelodeon's Double Dare, this syndicated show actually improved on the formula. The stunt and question rounds were paced properly, and some of the stunts were quite creative in nature, including a few (such as "Dumpo"), that developed quite a following among children.

Hands down the best part of the show was the Fun House itself, an amazingly elaborate labyrinth of obstacles that, as a child, I found mesmerizing. The show's second season featured a complete revamp of the house to include a water slide and a pool. The Fun House set is considered one of the best game show sets of all time, and the challenges of filming it led to the director of the show winning the Daytime Emmy for Best Game Show Director in 1989.

After the show's second season in 1990, the program left syndication and ran on Saturday mornings as Fox's Fun House on Fox. The Fun House was revamped again, featuring all new challenges.

Presumably the episodes exist on tape, and while they would be a good fit for Game Show Network or Nick Games and Sports reruns, they have not reaired since last broadcast in 1991."

I remember the show. I think I liked the idea of being able to run through a Fun House and collect prizes. A place like that would be amazing to trip in!

I used to have some negative feelings about the pressure cooker room. What if it just kept squeezing and didn't stop?

Mindfulness is the aware, balanced acceptance of the present experience.
It isn't more complicated than that.
It is opening to or recieving the present moment, pleasant or unpleasant, just as it is,
without either clinging to it or rejecting it.
